Reverse Energizing Flow

Hatha | By Jason Crandell on Apr 26 2011
You're interested in an energizing sequence because you're tired, right? And, when you're tired you want to rest -- but if you rest too long you feel lousy. Right? Think about this class as a class in reverse. You will give in to your fatigue and start in savasana. Then, you'll coax yourself into some reclined twists, slow lunges, and even some standing poses. To complete the practice you will do several rounds of sun-salutations and finish in a brief standing meditation. It'll open your eyes and get you moving.

    I love this. I was ready to just go back to bed and sneak in another half hour of sleep, but decided to do this instead. Now I feel super happy I woke up early! Love your videos Jason. You're my current favorite. Thank you :)
    • Jason Crandell     Jul 13th, 2014

    I have been feeling really low in my energy lately, and this was a great way to ease into my practice. Thank you, jason!
  • Kristi Garza     Feb 18th, 2014
    I have narcolepsy. I cried through the first half of class, and can tell by how I feel at the end that today is going to be the best day I've had in years. I will be doing this practice at least daily. Thank you. I feel like I've been waiting all my life for this class, and to hear someone say those words. I guess I found my teacher!
    • Jason Crandell     Feb 18th, 2014
      I'm so happy this was so beneficial for you, Kristi!
  • Cindi Zumbo     Feb 17th, 2014

      Glad this worked well for you Jill, thanks!
  • kristina woolf     Nov 13th, 2013

    • Jason Crandell     Nov 13th, 2013
      Thanks Kristina.
  • Ashley Schaeffer     Nov 12th, 2013
    What a brilliant idea! Usually when I *force* myself on a morning I'm this tired, I end up feeling resentful on some level lol. With your practice I was able to really ease in and now I'm feeling gently energized and refreshed. Very much appreciated! :)
    • Jason Crandell     Nov 12th, 2013
      Thanks Ashley.

  • Tracey Ellis     Oct 15th, 2013
    Very nice Jason! I sometimes suffer from a chronic fatigue thing and perhaps this is the way for me to go when I'm not feeling so hot, starting out slowly. Thank you!
    • Jason Crandell     Oct 15th, 2013
      Thanks Tracey.
  • Julie Ottewell     Oct 9th, 2013
    Woke up this morning feeling tired and slightly down. After a busy week pushing myself to hard this class was perfect to energise and release the knots in my body. Thank you for a lovely class. Added to my series. Will be doing again.

    • Jason Crandell     Oct 10th, 2013
      Thanks Julie. Glad you enjoyed it.
  • Anna Charlotta     Sep 19th, 2013
    This was my first morning class after few days of flu and a bad week in general- and still today I woke up tired and completely without energy. This class really worked for this state, helped me to go back to work and feel better. thank you Jason!
    • Jason Crandell     Sep 19th, 2013
      Glad to hear this helped you feel better! Thanks Anna.
  • Donna Williams     Sep 11th, 2013
    Yeaaaahhhh, really like this as a morning practice at the end of the week when 5am feels tough. Mucho gratitude xxx
    • Jason Crandell     Sep 12th, 2013
      Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks Donna.
  • Shona Andrew     Aug 30th, 2013
    My 4 year old daughter's comments about this class: (pointing at you) can he hear us? (pointing at me) you're flying... :)
    • Jason Crandell     Aug 30th, 2013
      HA! That's pretty funny and very sweet! Thanks for enjoying!
  • Satya Larrea     Aug 28th, 2013
    I can't say enough Thanks to you, Jason. This and all of your sequences are spot on for me. Thanks a million times.

    Satya
    • Jason Crandell     Aug 28th, 2013
      My pleasure Satya. Thanks for practicing.
  • Karen Turner     Aug 13th, 2013
    I woke up stressed an hour before my alarm, so I got up and took your class. Am new to yogaglo and this was my favorite morning practice so far. Thank you for helping me be kind to myself! :)
    • Jason Crandell     Aug 13th, 2013
      My pleasure Karen. Glad you were able to start your day with this.
  • Cristina Pansiera     Aug 4th, 2013
    Some morning classes tend to start like you're ready to rock ! I sleep well but I do like to start my day slowly...At the end of the class I was feeling great to go on with the day!Thanks for the great class...30 min perfect time...
    • Jason Crandell     Aug 4th, 2013
      I can relate to wanting to tart slowly. glad you enjoyed this Cristina.
  • sarah grace     Jul 29th, 2013
    I love how you said that it's important to not fight our fatigue. So often, I don't let myself rest and this class was just what I needed to feel re-energized and at the same time like I had actually conserved energy. What a blessing this class was for me. Thank you Jason!
    • Jason Crandell     Jul 29th, 2013
      Glad you enjoyed this Sarah. Thanks for the comment.
  • Emily Schurr     Jul 28th, 2013
    Wonderful, Jason - had me thinking why there aren't more classes like this! My teacher always begins class with 'constructive rest' and I've always loved it as a way to build up to the central pose(s) - but I've never actually thought of doing a class in reverse. The perfect start to the day! Thank you so much!! :)
    • Jason Crandell     Jul 28th, 2013
      Thanks Emily!
  • Colleen Bell     Jul 19th, 2013
    This is one of my absolute favorite classes ever!! I love it- and it actually works!! Thank you for this!!! :)
    • Jason Crandell     Jul 20th, 2013
      My pleasure Colleen, thanks!
  • Pam Wrigley     Jul 9th, 2013
    Woke up this morning shattered, and I now feel I actually have some energy, thank you Jason, I have a busy day ahead :-)
    • Jason Crandell     Jul 10th, 2013
      Glad this created energy for you! Thanks Pam.
  • Pam Wrigley     Jul 9th, 2013
    Woke up this morning shattered, and I now feel I actually have some energy, thank you Jason, I have a busy day ahead :-)
  • Susan Kruger     Jul 3rd, 2013
    Thanks for breaking the rules! I didn't think it was possible to actually feel energized, but this natural flow was absolute perfection!
    • Jason Crandell     Jul 3rd, 2013
      Glad this worked well for you Susan! Thanks
  • Tara Jungclaus     Jun 21st, 2013
    Just what I needed today. Thank you so much, Jason!

    • Jason Crandell     May 5th, 2013
      Happy you liked it, thanks Debra
  • Antoinette Pole     Apr 30th, 2013
    Jason, This was wonderful! I feel energized! Though I practice vinyasa typically, I took a chance and hit the jackpot! The logic of starting in savansana and coaxing the body awake is brilliant. Many thanks!
  • Kristy Ayre     Apr 26th, 2013
    Thanks so much Jason. I really appreciate your creative and very thoughtful sequences. A perfect practice for how I was feeling today. This will be a regular! Nameste.

  • Emily Johnson     Apr 22nd, 2013

  • Marjorie Blaine     Apr 9th, 2013
    This was a great practice.....just what I needed to address my fatigue. Thank you so much for this innovative practice.
    • Jason Crandell     Apr 9th, 2013
      Glad to enjoyed it Marjorie, thanks!
  • Jessica Olewnik     Apr 5th, 2013

    • Jason Crandell     Apr 5th, 2013
      Thanks Jessica
  • Gosia Bytnerowicz     Feb 25th, 2013
    That was great. I always find it really hard to get out of bed for yoga (or any exercise, for that matter) but starting in savasana was the perfect remedy! Namaste
  • ivo georgiev     Feb 19th, 2013
    thank you Jason..it was really an energizing class :)
    • Jason Crandell     Feb 19th, 2013
      Thanks Ivo!
  • Drea Firth     Feb 18th, 2013
    I love this class! It's perfect when I'm tired, and it seems like I'm always tired; I wish all classes could start this way. Jason, you do such a great job of being logical and methodical, and also like intuitive organic, in the way you approach how yoga works on the body. I love it, you clarify things that we can easily take for granted, and make them more clean and useful.
    • Jason Crandell     Feb 18th, 2013
      Thanks a lot Drea!
  • Michelle Nichols     Feb 12th, 2013
    Hey, that was a great session. Thanks. I've been doing yogaglo for a couple of weeks with back strengthening and general stretching to awaken my muscles. It's been working well but this class was very invigorating. :D
    • Jason Crandell     Feb 13th, 2013
      thanks Michelle! glad you found it invigorating
  • Mona Ramlawi     Feb 4th, 2013
    You are my favorite yogaglo teacher, Jason! I have taken 3 yogaglo classes over the past 48 hours, all of which you teach (I just joined on Saturday). This sequence is great....I roll out of bed and can lazily get into it. I find with the other morning yoga classes, you can't really do that. Thank you for continuing to encourage and support my practice!
    • Jason Crandell     Feb 4th, 2013
      what remarkably good taste you have, Mona :)
  • Shawna Carroll     Jan 24th, 2013
    What a great idea! Just what I need when I start my day with yoga straight out of bed!
    • Jason Crandell     Jan 24th, 2013
      Thanks Shawna!
  • Vanessa Koman     Jan 1st, 2013
    That was EXACTLY what I needed to start off my new year! I had very little energy and felt pretty blah, but now I feel energized and ready for the rest of the day!
    • Jason Crandell     Jan 1st, 2013
      Happy this worked well for you Vanessa. thanks!
  • Jaime Bastian     Dec 27th, 2012

      thanks Jaime!
  • Carrie Snyder     Dec 16th, 2012
    Thanks so much, Jason - you perfectly addressed my concerns with doing an "energizing" class when feeling tired! Namaste.
  • Tara Anderson     Dec 3rd, 2012
    Fantastic idea and fantastic practice! Thank you.

    Just what I needed after 17 days of intensive jet-lagging travel with little sleep and virtually no yoga, THANKS!

    Rebecca - happy you liked it! thanks for practicing
  • miyeco McCullough     Sep 9th, 2012
    wow. everything popped in my spine when twisting to the sides. amazing how fatigue can keep the body tense, yet tired. this is a lovely sequence, thanks Jason!
  • Rebecca Harris     Sep 6th, 2012
    Perfectly amazing--thank you! This really helped my fatigue. I particularly appreciate how open the practice left me feeling and the consistent emphasis on breath.

  • Jason Crandell     Jul 21st, 2012
    Elisa - glad it worked for you.
  • Cecilia Lunardini     Jul 21st, 2012
    I find this practice really helpful. However, especially when I am tired, my wrists hurt with pressure, in planck and upward facing dog pose. Any suggestions for variations? Thank you!
    • Jason Crandell     Jul 21st, 2012
      Cecilia - Try forearm plank and sphinx pose.
      • Cecilia Lunardini     Jul 24th, 2012
        great, I will do that, thank you!
  • Elisa Sabedra     Jul 21st, 2012

    thanks Jason , my first class with you and it just opened up my mind and made me feel really calm
  • Sharon Henderson     Aug 19th, 2011
    Exactly what I needed Jason! Loved that pick-me-up!!
  • Patricia Brune     Aug 15th, 2011
    Jason - :-) I'm sure you will read thoroughly glowing reviews from me in the future. I'm just not the world's biggest Surya Namaskar fan.
  • Jason Crandell     Aug 14th, 2011
    @Patricia Brune: I thought I had this comment feed filtered to only give me glowing reviews! Thanks for your thoughts--and, yes, what you've suggested would also have worked (minus the camel pose ;-).
  • Patricia Maccaro     Aug 14th, 2011
    Sometimes we just need someone else to give us permission to be where we are, thank you Jason, this is such an excellent way to Awaken, simply loved your teaching.
  • holly peters     Aug 13th, 2011
    this is one of the best wake-ups. Really nice in the morning when you are feeling sleepy or "muddy"...
    thank you, Jason.
  • Patricia Brune     Aug 12th, 2011
    I love the concept and did enjoy the practice despite it being a few too many sun salutes for my taste. I think some seated hip openers, shoulder openers and a nice camel pose before spending all that time on Surya Namaskar would have been better - maybe for another practice of this nature? ;-)
  • holly peters     Aug 12th, 2011
    yup, this worked well for a too early morning.
    Thank you.
  • Felicity Kelly     Aug 9th, 2011
    demonstates the transience of all states! Loved the honesty as a theme in this practice. Thanks

    Brilliant! Thank you, Jason! My biggest problem at work is about 2:30 or 3:00 I lose all steam and can barely keep my eyes open, and don't come alive again until about 4:15-4:30. I lose so much in productivity. This class is EXACTLY what I needed...it required me to put a rating system on my favorites, because it's my favorite favorite. Thank you so much! Namaste.

    Jason I keep coming back to this class again and again! I love it, especially on mornings where I'm really feeling tired. I walk away feeling great and ready to tackle the day. Would love to see more of these reverse energizers!

    From someone who is not a morning person, this was brilliant! By the end, I was bright and happy and ready to start my day :) Thanks!

    What a perfect way to begin the day when you want to move but are tired! Namaste Jason.
  • Sheila Gill     Jun 17th, 2011
    Thank you Jason! You have such a lovely sensitivity to the realities of the body. Dealing with an injury right now, early morning practice has been difficult, but this one got me going in a really inviting, safe way. Namaste.

    Never would have thought of doing a class like this but it worked wonders for me after a late night and an early morning meeting! Thanks
  • Marketa Foley     Jun 5th, 2011
    Thanks very much, Jason. This sequence really worked for me on a day when I felt I was too tired to do anything but lie in savasana. Jai Bhagwan.
  • Lara Swinarton     May 31st, 2011
    This was EXACTLY what I needed THANK YOU!
  • G.C. Aloha     May 30th, 2011
    I was feeling tired and lazy at the start, but by the end, I was forgoing the knee to the mat and happily getting energized by the sun salutations. I'd love another class like this but longer, building to a really energizing practice, for a total of an hour or so. Thanks so much for this "backwards" approach. It really worked for me today!

  • Kim Cortes     May 25th, 2011
    Amazing! This is exactly what I need in the morning, and the sun was actually up by the time we got to sun salutations :)

    If a reverse Oreo cookie decided to reincarnate as a yoga class, this would be it's form. Inside out, backwards and just as delicious!
